Although controversial YouTuber Logan Paul is known for the multiple scandals that have cropped up throughout his career, that isn’t stopping him from making new moves in the space - one of which could be a joint project with a major celebrity.

Professional basketball player and former Kardashian spouse Lamar Odom appeared on an episode of Logan Paul’s ‘imPaulsive’ podcast in early May, where the two discussed a potential YouTube channel for the sports star.

While Odom initially expressed a desire to get back into reality TV following his marriage to Khloe Kardashian and his role in their ‘Khloe & Lamar’ show, he appeared to entertain Paul’s suggestion - a suggestion that was brought up a second time during an interview with YouTube celebrity news outlet Hollywood Life a month later.

The hostess asked Odom if he would be interested in such a venture with Logan Paul as per their initial discussion, to which the pro had an optimistic response, calling the potential venture a “good idea.”

“Yeah, I mean if Logan Paul, if they walked me down that aisle,” Odom replied. “I would try to marry it, maybe. It’s a good idea. And they’re the number one influencers in the world so, if they wanted to team up with me and show me how that works in that world, I would think about it.”

Although no further details have yet been released about this possible joining of forces, it wouldn’t be the first time Paul has considered changing up his YouTube career in a major way.

The YouTube star announced in a Tweet on May 28 that he hopes to pursue a career in full time fighting, following a year of attempting to infiltrate the UFC - to no avail.

Paul’s massively popular boxing match against rival YouTuber KSI in August 2018 set off a chain reaction of events, with fighting pros and commentators worldwide weighing in on the possibility of Paul’s stint in the sport.

Despite UFC president Dana White vehemently denying Paul a chance in the octagon, it looks like the YouTuber isn’t giving up hope, just yet - nor a chance at making it big with a big-time celeb, for that matter.
